    Not to hate, but; 16:9 resolution isn't ideal for CAD, graphic design, photography and other demanding tasks. Used to get 1600x1200 and 2048x1536 from old 21" CRTs. This isn't good.

    However, just google and found LG have made a 5.5" phone screen @ 2560 x 1440. They look awesome. 16:9 is fine for that.
